The Norwegian poster boy has had his most productive season for Rovers for a couple of seasons as he has scored four league goals and has the crossing ability to lay on chances for any of his team-mates. With six assists to his name he has been the team’s most consistent performer.
Charlie Adam

With seven goals and as many assists this season it is no wonder there were so many suitors vying for his signature in January. The midfielder is the heartbeat of the team and when he performs the rest of the team invariably does too.
Both teams are desperate for points and I think the play will showcase that perfectly. With two dodgy defences on show there should be chances aplenty but whether either team has the fire power to score the goals remains to be seen.
